Lip Reduction

Although full lips are currently a desirable feature sought by many people, excessively prominent lips may interfere with oral function, and “fat lips” can become a source of ridicule.

Some patients typically seek correction for aesthetic reasons. The goals for lip reduction surgery are to achieve a harmonious relationship between the upper and lower lips that is in balance with the entire face as well as to attain normal lip competence.

Typically, female lip is typically more protrusive than the male lip, except ethnicities.  For example, on average, African American males have 13.3-mm upper lips and 13.2-mm lower lips, and African American females have 13.6-mm upper lips and 13.8-mm lower lips. North American Caucasian vermilion height norms of upper and lower lip for males and females are 8.0 and 8.7 mm and 9.3 and 9.4 mm.

Some general principles include the following

  2. Establish a balance between upper and lower lip tailored to the individual patient.
  3. Do not reduce lips if excessive interlabial distance exists.
  4. Obtain optimal frontal rather than profile aesthetics.
